    Wasting My Life Away !

    Every day I get up and my routine is the same and not very interesting. I'm married and have 2 dogs. My husband works crazy hours and is usually not around and when he is he likes to sleep a lot! Needless to say but after 23 years together the spark is gone. I have always...

    My Weekends

    During the week, I get things done.....then the weekend happens and I virtually go into a coma. I could sleep all day if I wanted, I try not to do that and wake up to actually live the day out. When I am awake, the day consists of watching tv, being online, or some other way to...

    Watching the Days Pass

    Since I quit my job 3 months ago, almost everyday has been the same.  I sit at at home alone every night while my partner is at work.  I get increasingly more depressed each day.  I'm too anxious to try to find a new job, but the longer I don't leave the ...

    Just Practicing the Art

    What is productivity? Once you choose to do nothing, then your doing nothing, isn't nothing at all.  It's somthing. But if you refuse to define what it is that your doing, productivity is randomly and chaoticly thrown in with the rest of the equation. So In either...

    I Wasted Another Day

    How many days have of your life have you wasted? More of my days were wasteful than not. In fact, I can't remember the last time I have done anything  beneficial at all. If I die tomorrow, I will definitely regret not having used this time to do something...anything! I could...

    Monotonous?

    I have all the free time in the world to study but I cannot do it. At all. I have open books in front of me but I have no will to actually look at them. I sit and listen to music and watch t.v. On occasion I even fix my hair. I need to be semi-productive when I have the...
